ARK's base taming speed on PC, PS4, and Xbox is now doubled, meaning 1× is as fast as what 2× was previously. Dododex has been updated to reflect this. Use the "presets" dropdown for common multipliers.
For full Archaeopteryx taming details, get the taming calculator app.
Don't put points into its movement speed if you want to glide faster. It glides as fast you run, so putting points into your movement speed will increase how fast it will glide. Hope this saves you from wasting levels like me : )
Amazing for riding Ptera. Right before you run out of stamina on ptera, simply jump off while holding one of these and the ptera will regain its stamina in the air. Once your pteras stamina is full you can hop back on. Never need to land in dangerous areas again.
Make sure you DON'T mistake them for Micros. These dudes run. I've accidentally killed one thinking it was a micro. Always use a spy glass to tell which is which. Finding these cute lil fellas is hard especially with all the thylas and terror birds around. To tame them you'll need Chitin so go kill some ants or dragonflies and then boom you have a lil buddy you can love forever, well y'know until they die or you quit.

Some youtubers say that they are useless. WRONG. They are better than wasting time crafting a parachute and they can attack and they are small so very hard to target. I saw one of these drill through a rex and the thing didn’t even take damage once and the rex died.
The Archaeopteryx is a tree-dwelling bird-like dinosaur. While its smaller frame make it unfit for riding, it is strong enough to carry humans, allowing them to glide across long distances. Taming an Archaeopteryx is no simple task, as it will immediately flee when approached, and once knocked out, it prefers to eat rare insect matter.
What does a Archaeopteryx eat?In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Archaeopteryx eats Simple Kibble, Pelagornis Kibble, and Chitin.
